It's about time I let you in on some of the news happening around here. I didn't mean to leave you in the dark. But these longer days had me thinking that darkness was a thing of the past, and, well, you see where that led: late newsletters.

I hope your spring is a marvel, as it should be. Spoiler alert: show opening in Minneapolis next week. See below.

Three large oil paintings have just been installed at the US Embassy in Moscow, on loan there until the end of 2016. (Pictured below: Late Vermilion Light, 36 x 74; Birches Enveloped III, 39 x 54; and Highland Summer, 38 x 66.) More details.

□ The rockin' Rockwell Museum in Corning, NY, has purchased a group of six of my gouache paintings for their permanent collection from my recent show there, "Touching on Water."

□ Last fall and winter, my oil painting Half Dome from Mirror Lake, part of the Yosemite Museum Collection, joined 26 other artists' work for an exhibition at the Museum of art from some of Yosemite National Park's Artists-in-Residence from the last 30 years, titled "Rooms with a View".

□ You can now find my paintings in East Aurora, NY, shown by Grace and the good people at Meibohm Fine Arts.

□ Exhibition: "Pictures from a Trip" (group show; yes, I am attending the reception) opens on June 12 at Groveland Gallery in Minneapolis. Through August 29.

□ Exhibition: "Wilderness" (solo show) opens September 11 at Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia. This will include many works from my traveling museum show "On Nature's Terms" plus some new paintings from wilderness areas. Through October 3.

□ And, I am just starting in on a three-year project that will culminate in a museum exhibition in 2018. I won't say much about it now, but future emails will fill you in.
